Drinking 23 Weeks Pregnant Aloe Vera Ice?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Aloe vera is a plant that has long been believed to have many benefits. Among the properties that we can take from aloe vera are:
Natural make-up cleanser Reduces itching and rashes on the mouth and skin Accelerates the healing process of herpes virus wounds Treats psoriasis Relieves sunburned skin As a laxative
Although nutritious and derived from plants, their use cannot be given to everyone. Children under 12 years, people with hemorrhoids, people with kidney disease, those with intestinal problems and pregnant and lactating women should not be given aloe vera. Regarding your question, aloe vera is better avoided in pregnant women because there have been reports linking it to miscarriage. But it is not certain that a miscarriage is right, and of course the aloe must be consumed in a certain level for a certain period of time as well.
So our advice, if you are worried, it never hurts to check with a gynecologist. But if not, and you also don't feel any symptoms, then it doesn't matter if you combine the check-up with your routine pregnancy check-up schedule.
However, if you experience symptoms that lead to a miscarriage, such as lower abdominal pain, spotting or bleeding, discharge of tissue or lumps from the genitals, or others, consult a doctor immediately.
Meanwhile, keep living a healthy lifestyle by staying away from stress and cigarette smoke, routine pregnancy control, consuming pregnancy vitamins, increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables, and not being too tired. We wish you a smooth pregnancy and childbirth.
